, massachusetts. theoretically, it is a great idea that people should talk politics all the time. the problem is that the nation is divided. they cannot have civil discourse. some programs on c- span, national security issues, people discussing this pointed out that our politicians are unable to discuss certain issues, so how to use -- how do you expect civilians to do so? host: have you have holidays ruined because of political discussions? caller: they can just add to the fuel. roy, from is massachusetts. page, on our facebook most of them saying no. 63 are saying thanksgiving is not time to talk politics. one of the ways you can talk to us about if thanksgiving is a time to talk about politics and how that goes for you, @cspanwj is our twitter address, facebook.com/cspan is our facebook page and journal@c- span.org is our e-mail. taylor, elkton, maryland, democrats line. taylor? caller: good morning. i think it is a great time. one of the things i am most thankful for is growing up with a republican mother and a democrat father. every meal is a political -- meal with is a discussions about
, massachusetts, for democrats. you are on with trita parsi. i agree with the caller earlier who was saying why is netanyahu screaming about orion -- iran having nuclear weapons? for them to have that to have energy throughout their country and it creates jobs for their country. think we need to put israel in check. it seems like they are trying to take focus off of what they are doing in their country. they are taking all of the land andans' dividing that country. -- he feels pity because they are treating me palestinian people the same way at germany treated the israeli people. host: do think that is a fair assessment? guest: i would say that because the iranians are -- of the mpt. the and national -- the international community is -- i don'tthe fact think they need a nuclear weapons. nuclear and causes a nuclear domino effect in the middle east, then you have other countries starting nuclear weapons programs. that would eliminate a conventional superiority that iran has. it would eight p.m. -- it would -- mistake for them to host: an e-mail that we received on the subject. in what hetes doe
programs like medicare part d come and the massachusetts help reform that was obamacare's predecessor. most people tend to sign up for coverage closer deadlines, so that is what the administration hopes will vindicate them after the first month, which did not go well. host: but if the deadline is not until march, why were expectations so high to begin with? people do not have to sign up until later. guest: that is right here at march is a key deadline because it is obviously the end of a six-month enrollment period. the other date is december 15, which is when people choose plans if they want them to kick in in january. there are a lot of people losing their coverage right now and they're going to want to remain insured, and for them, the middle of december is the crucial deadline. the reason that that is tough for the administration is it comes only two weeks after the deadline, where they say they're going to have the website fix, which is the end of this month, so if they cannot have healthcare.gov up and running, functioning enough for millions of people to actually buy their health pla
. the senate was in session. ironically, the 31-year-old senator from massachusetts, ted kennedy was presiding at that moment. guest: that is right. as many of your viewers know, being the presiding officer is more of a chore than a position of power. the power in the senate resides with the two floor leaders. being in the chair is pretty ceremonial. sign -- islways is a assigned to a freshman. he was one of 10 a freshman in that class. he was the youngest of the bunch at 31 years old. hort strahl s and was presiding at the lunch hour. as was typical, there was no roll call vote that day. they started preliminary debate on legislation the following week. there was some pulmonary debate going on. this was 20 minutes after the shots were fired. a messenger came in and informed senator kennedy as the -- i had never seen that before. that was a moving bit of footage. it happened just like that. he slipped out of the room. a general hubbub ensued. a guy named winston from vermont was giving a speech about library construction. said, woulde morse the senator yield for an emergency. that got everyone
at a time. " i live in massachusetts. they just got rid of all of the black american workers, i don't know if you are aware of this or [indiscernible] i am not familiar with what you're talking about. if they hire a foreign worker, they can claim them as a business expense and get them will-- and get back there wages from the government. this was in massachusetts? caller: a company came in here in 2010 and just started firing black people, two people at a time. host: that is tyrone in boston. chart -- do you ever worry that your total income will not be enough to meet your family's expensive -- expenses? in 1971, it was 8%. in 2013, it was 19%. up to 32% in 2012 forward workers -- for workers making less than $35,000. caller: thanks for c-span. i was an engineer. i am out of work 15 years. the visa, it is for six-year stay. who they think have stopped looking, we drifted into a cash society. you have to know the value of every stupid thing. books, cars, all kinds of things. when people in the neighborhood get it out of work, you get good deals and you can quadruple and triple your money. c
into the medical model or the massachusetts model. we saw an onslaught of enrollment. some of that is in human nature. we should anticipate growth until the final end of the sign- up cycle. enrollment is ahead of that of massachusetts. host: why is guest: in oh, a number of people are -- you know, a number of people are calling for different sites. it if you can get people into intermediate steps where they can review all levels of the plan, from the gold and platinum plans, still not substantial to the outcome of the world that existed before the affordable care act. people are saying we went to amazon and bought books and did this. it is not the same. how many people, it is a difficult journey. constituents reached out to a navigator, and they consider themselves to be fairly about and well-informed insurance coverage but they still needed a navigator to help them through the different plans and what they would mean to their own pocketbook. it is happening. it is evolving. want to get past the kinks in the system, we will get to a much needed reform that is long overdue. host: when do you th
-term process. we saw this in massachusetts where the first couple of months were just feeling out and discovering what the site is all about. closer to the deadline, that is when the actual enrollment will happen. that theyou think administration has done enough to educate young people about what is available? why -- and why it is important? guest: they have made efforts, we need to do more. we talk to young people every day. the difference between obamacare and the affordable care act? things like that are not necessarily translating to young people on the ground. what is a deductible? these tax credits -- does that mean i will have to pay the full price up to run and wait for my refund on the road? you can pay the reduced price right away. things like that are very important for young people to understand. i think that we have a long way to go. not just for young people, but for all americans, to understand how this works. host: what is the difference between obamacare and the aca? guest: there is not a difference. the term perception, obamacare has become a political hot potato
that republicans have one. first was scott brown in massachusetts. there was a lot of national money there. at the center of that race was obamacare, which had not passed yet. it was -- scott brown was supposed to be the senator who could stop it. the wave in the house made gains in the senate but were not able to win those races. if you think about what republicans have lost since president obama was first , mitt romney12 explicitly did not run against obamacare or on health care. mostly because he was trying to get away from his record in massachusetts. republicans looking at this from a political perspective need to in criticizing obamacare and going after online health care, but it will also own,re a plan of their there are a lot of plans in the house and the senate that republicans are throwing out there, some good ideas, but there needs to be some leadership. someone who can take these ideas and say -- here is the republican vision for what health care should look like. it does not look like the old one and it certainly does not look like obamacare. this health care debate may stretc

by senator ed markey of massachusetts. he just joined this year. he is one of the leading clean energy advocates on capitol hill. he cosponsored the climate change bill in 2009 with waxman, he has been planning he wanted this to be his first legislation in the senate. it says electric utilities have to provide 25% of their electricity from renewable solar, -- wind., geothermal, by 2020 five. electric utilities and natural gas have to meet efficiency targets within a period. the second was introduced by tom udall and mike udall. their first cousins, they had a similar bill, 25% by 2025 renewable energy requirement, i don't believe they had the efficiency with theirs. the raf -- ref is popular at the state level. ranging fromevels 15% to 25% over the next decade or decade and a half. it is popular among clean energy advocates and environmentalists, it does not have a lot of chance of gaining traction in this congress. republicans are in charge of the house, they're very resistant to any sort of mandate, that is what an ref is. about realng energies and legislation on capitol hill.

next year. gerald is in boston massachusetts. the morning. caller: good morning. go red sox, first of all. act is notble care going to hurt the democrats at all for the same reason that mcconnell, cantor, and boehner all say "the sky is falling." all these republicans saying the sky is falling, they are going to start believing that. democrats need to hold ground. what does it say to you that there are democratic lawmakers that are starting to oppose bills that delay part of thatffordable care act have extensions on some of these deadlines. tonne shaheen is going next week andll she is up for reelection in 2014. what do those actions say to you? caller: just like any other color, they say the elections are coming up. i do not believe they are scared and shaky. i believe they are a little scared and shaky. we want to try to minimize the damage that we think these people are saying. we are doing it for the reelection bid that is all they wanted to. macconnell, boehner, everybody saying "the sky is falling am co-the teabags -- is falling," the teabags -- some political action groups a
is working in massachusetts. it uses ideas out of the heritage foundation. the individual mandate was originated in the heritage foundation in 1989. ae republicans introduced similar legislation in 1992. you guys are complaining that this is a radical thing. it is filled with republican ideas and the other problem is, you guys have complained for four years and jumping up and down and complaining about how awful obamacare is. there is no republican alternative as far as i know. there is none that has been passed in the house. you don't have a comprehensive health care plan. the health care costs that we have in the united states have been rising and rising for the past 20 years. they are projected to continue to rise if there is no change. what is the republican alternative to the awful, harvell, terrible, ghastly obamacare which is really romneycare? guest: i think it's true that in the 1990s, there were conservatives who were trying to be proactive and look for ways to solve the healthcare problem. it is wrong to say that all republicans embrace this idea and rally around it bu
points to massachusetts, but that law had huge bipartisan support in the state legislature, making it easy to go back and fix things when they did not work and tinker with it. host: here is a little bit from the president late last week. [video clip] who got cancellation notices do deserve and have received an apology from me. they want, whether we can make sure that they are in a better place and that we meet that commitment. by the way, it is important to note that a whole bunch of folks who madess and others this statement, they were entirely sincere about it. thisact that you have got percentage of people who have had this impact, i want them to know that their senator or congressman, they were making representations based on what i told them and what the white and the administrative staff told them. it is on us. it is something that we intend to fix. host: kyle cheney? guest: the president has been getting an earful from congress, democrats in congress, about the fact that they stuck their necks out for him when he said if you like your health plan, you can keep it. andcrats p
our independent line in massachusetts. caller: it is interesting to hear the president's talk about progress. when i hear the word "progress," it reminds me that it is a philosophically loaded term. i am 60 years old and i see the transformation in the values in this country that are no doubt media driven. you can go back to the 70s and it is just shocking to look at shows like little house on the prairie. there was more talent and trauma ,n one hour, incredible writing then you see today. television especially today seems to be run by cools. it reflects the anti-values of media moguls. we see murderers, serial killers all over the place, as if they are next door, left and right, although at the beginning of the programs they say this is fictional. at the same time you see a glorification of the cia, the fbi, and the militarization of the police. this philosophical transformation seems to be a form of social engineering. where it all began, i do not know. think the restu of the world perceives us through the media and entertainment we send out? one of the things that is underestimat
, not one drop of oil is going offshore. host: donna from massachusetts, democratic caller. caller: i am from first nation people. from the time colonization and the conquering oil the americans globally, this has been the same denial story over and over again. host: we have a few minutes left. what are you referring to? caller: i'm referring to the fact that this is doing no harm to mother earth. no harm to our water. no harm to the people that live upon this earth and animals. this is all about money. this is all about destroying land. this is not about the betterment of the people. this is about the betterment of the people who have so much money they don't know what to do with it. it's disgusting, this country cannot sit and tell the truth from the time of -- people should understand that every agreement that this country has made with the people, regarding land has been broken. host: we'll leave it there. move on to larry in santa barbara, california, independent caller. caller: i got a question for the people to represent the oil industry. given that people of canada have oppos
actually beefed- up and give us a chance to get a third airport. host: massachusetts, good morning. he is wrong. he is a good -- he is a big zero. all he cares about his taxes. he cares about the welfare people. they do not care about the working person, like i self. he never answers. he does not like white people. called my senators and congressmen. they never answer me back. the los angeles times has a follow-up story that lays after a shooting at the airport last week. they are urging the arming of tsa agents. when theyriting that developed the tsa, the mission was clear. officers would not carry guns or make arrests. they would screen passengers for dangerous materials. officerting death of an is the first fatality in the agent history. it could change things. called for a class of armed tsa officers. the training and authority to arrest people -- the sad truth is that they are subject to daily verbal assaults and far too frequent physical attacks. mike from richmond virginia, republican line. caller: i want to talk a little bit about the virginia race for governor. i am a republic
are an elizabeth warren liberal from massachusetts, it doesn't matter where you stand, if you stand against an american war policy you have to speak up. that is probably the best response. host: herman in louisiana on our line for democrats. caller: good morning. host: good morning. caller: i want to say a couple of things right quick. i want to ask the gentleman a question. man, 87i am a negro years old. i have been all over the world. i know how much america is being hated around the world. if i was an american born citizen and give up my citizenship to go to another country to join up and to do damage to this country where i was born, i think america has a bring me down. i have a trucking company. i had to lose it because i could -- there and got $500,000 from saudi arabia. i think we have our priorities mixed up. i was 30 years around the world as a merchant seaman. i know what i'm talking about right now. guest: if i read the caller you are the second caller that has leaned towards by thethe assassination u.s. military with a drone in yemen, he is the american citizen killed, was justi
together to get it right. if people would look at the massachusetts health care law that was passed while mitt romney, whom most republicans voted for, remember, it took them six months to get this straightened out. this is for a whole 50 states, so it's going to have to take a little time to get it straightened out, but it is a good thing for the country and we need to fix it, we don't need to get rid of it. think abouto you the political background on what is going on, especially in light of yesterday's vote? caller: caller: i don't care about the politics of this. people aret that being treated right. insurance companies have to own up to what they have to do. you always hear horror stories about people can't get the treatment they want because the insurance companies are turning him down left and right. especially before this was passed, they were turned down because they had a previous illness. so let's forget about the politics. this is not -- excuse me -- a republican or democrat thing, this is for the country. the president meeting with the heads of insurance companies at the whi
after scott graham one in massachusetts, he change the senate. i will say one thing about obama. here's one of the most dogged individuals and stubborn. he is going to get his way. host: al from cambridge ohio, independent line, is next. supporter of i'm a the affordable care act. i was able to find a comparable ohio on theere in verge of retirement. thate a report here speaker boehner signed up for the affordable care act yesterday. have you heard this? host: you try to and i don't think he was successful, if i recall correctly. caller: the reports i have is that he was successful, i'm reading it on salon.com. he was able to get on and apply. on the greater budget, --host: talk about your own experience. how much were you paying before and how much are you paying now? had health care at my employer. i was looking for comparable coverage on the healthcare.gov. our legislature didn't choose the set up in exchange so i had to go to healthcare.gov. i think i did it on october 1 or second. i was just looking for estimates. i won't be able to apply until i start to lose insurance in april
the map. guest: i would agree with that. it is an imprecise term. in massachusetts on our line for independents. caller: i have been watching c- span for seven years, and i think this is a critical topic, and i want to say thank you to both of them, especially robert, for 20 years of opening this pandora's box. host: thank you. we go to alabama. caller: it sounds as though poverty is being equated with laziness. know theike to statistics for individuals that have college degrees that are receiving some of these benefits because they cannot find jobs. guest: i do not think laziness is the proper word. i do think that maintaining a strong work ethic and trying to be in the labor force as much as possible is an important factor in escaping poverty, but i also realize that in the current time there are millions of americans that simply cannot find jobs, and that is a problem with the current economy. is it is not so much laziness, but it is a question up inen somebody shows the welfare office and says i cannot find a job, i have children to support, i need assistance, i do not want
